National Geographic Traveller - Belgrade

May 14, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Back in March I went to Belgrade to photograph a feature on city life for National Geographic Traveller. 

I timed my trip perfectly to coincide with the Beast from the East. The weather was mostly awful, although I got a two hour window towards the end of my stay when the sun came out. 

The problem was the pictures were for June Issue of the mag. It was certainly a challenge, contending with the snow, hats and scarves, and Christmas decorations still hanging around town. I've never had to think so hard on my feet and come up with some creative angles. Fortunately there was a lot to photograph inside the beautiful churches and museums about town. 

Here is a selection of images and cuttings from the mag, and a BTS pic courtesy of my friend and travel buddy Chavala Madlena.  Belgrade City Life-145Belgrade City Life-145Belgrade Fortress: the Fortress consists of the old citadel and Kalemegdan Park on the confluence of the River Sava and Danube, in an urban area of modern Belgrade.
